Criminal Record Expungements
Is your past catching up to you? Are you worried that a criminal background check might
limit your employment opportunities? The Internet has made it much easier for employers,
educational institutions, or anyone else to conduct background checks. Even an arrest
that did not lead to a conviction for a crime may affect your future. Many Misdemeanors
and even some Felonies may be eligible for a criminal record expungement or sealing.
Illinois Law allows qualifying arrests, Supervisions, and convictions to be either expunged or
sealed. Even if the disposition of your case does not allow for an expungement, you may still be
eligible to have your records sealed. This is true for most non-violent Misdemeanor cases but
not Felony offenses. However, certain Class 4 Felony drug offenses may be eligible for sealing
and others may be expunged if the accused completed certain special Felony Probation, such as
TASC Probation or First Offender Drug Probation.

expungement or sealing of your criminal record.
